    I just tried to install their SS brakelines and the fronts are different from the stock set up. The end that goes through the frame doesn't have a grove in it to slide the c-clip in. How are you supposed to tighten it up through the frame cuz the hose gets pulled right through the frame hole? I could use a washer or grind down a bid nut (flat) and tighten against that I suppose. What do you guys think?

    Stuck is a state of mind!

    My Superlift lines came with a very thick Snap ring that was supposed to be clamped on the rear(frame side) of the brake line fitting. The thing was so thick I couldn't get it to budge. So instead i used a nut since the brake line fitting was threaded. Works like a charm!
